I'm on a quest to find a good website, similar to LibraryThing, which helps you catalog your video games. I know that technically you can add games on here too, but I wanted to use this site for only printed materials.

A few gaming news sites have some sort of ability to catalog your collection, but it's usually restricted to the most recent consoles. I'm thinking of a site with a database reaching all the way back to NES and Atari, through PS3 and PC games. And anything else.

Anyone know of a website that does this?

I found my old favourite gaming site:
www.gamespot.com

There you can list the games you own. Unfortunately there is no possibility to create multiple collection (loaned, for sale etc.) but I think most games should be catalogued there (at least PS2 games were still there..).

You could try multiple accounts on LT? I personally keep them removed from the Your Library collection so they're completely separated from any books I have.

I love LT so much that I can't think of a better site for it, particularly because of the ability to customize how you enter data, allowing for more accuracy than I've seen elsewhere (depending on if you want to be accurate with developers, &c., as I've seen a lot of video games entered incorrectly).

Buutttttttt I also keep most of my games private so I don't get yelled at by book snobs again.

Howlongtobeat.com is also alright, but has an ugly-as-balls name.

I'd recommend www.mobygames.com They've got extensive and huge bibliographic information for games going well back into the DOS and Commodore eras, including complete credits, screenshots, cover scans, etc. for most games. And a very easy to use system for adding games to your "havelist".
